new technology that is pretty widely available already, called 3-d printing, has made it really easy to make firearms that comply with the existing law but are still potentially undetectable. why is that? because to be a legal weapon, you have to have a certain percentage of the weapon be metal so that it can be picked up by a metal detector or a x-ray machine. but because we can now make very creatively constructed weapons with 3-d printers, that piece of metal can be easily removed before it goes through a metal detector and still be used without the metal on the other side of the detection unit. thus, essentially erasing the benefit of having a metal component if the metal component can just be stripped out. it's a pretty simple update that we have to make here. all we have to say is that the metal piece of the gun has to be integral to the firing mechanism of the gun so that if you take the metal out to get it through a metal detector, it doesn't work on the other end. but, mr. president, we're having a hard time getting that commonsense update, just recognizing the advancem

all of the technology schools come you'll find that the boys turn out in large numbers. again, we are supposed to say that males and females are cognitively interchangeable and that is the politically correct view among certain educators and politicians and certainly gender scholars. and i do think that there is a difference on average and we have several decades of feminism that fields or open and law and veterinary medicine. but they were male dominated. . . medicine. and there was always this and now more than ever, if you want to close this gap, you should major in petroleum engineering. you will make far more money if you become a petroleum engineer and early childhood education and sociology and yet young woman -- you don't find too many going into it. so if a boy wants to be an early childhood educator, or a girl wants to work on an oil rig, i think that's possible and there are still some barriers, but goerall, that seems to be the saying that it's some kind of injustice. i think that we should acknowledge on average they are more interested in technology and you will find

employed physicians in five different states. the way that works is through great information technology, which is a big investment but an important investment that allows us now to segment the patient population into areas of need and design programs specifically to those areas of need. so for instance, that our home care programs for those most vulnerable but have trouble getting into the doctor's office and avoid 911 calls and trips to the emergency room. there are comprehensive care clinics for those folks that have very complex diseases where there's individual care plans monitored by a team. and i have to say without equivocation, health care is delivered is a team sport. it's great to have a physician in the center of the team but having care managers, having disease management, having social workers, having dietitians, having homecare capabilities is a key component of making it an effective system. so i ask you without any equivocation, please continue to support him a. strengthen it, help it grow, supports special needs programs, support moving the tools into medicare advantage

technology is bringing much more rapid change to the system that can't be disruptive. i think embracing these changes will allow a much more efficient utilization of energy resources. the challenge before us is to enable the system to be more efficient through the utilization of technology and foster the development of a diverse set of competitive energy resources while at the same time and sure we have the power and reasonable rates for consumers. as a result of the technology we are experiencing a supply of natural gas and resulting gas prices at the lowest since 2002. this is changing the economics of electric generation resulting the retirement of older and less efficient units and most recently some nuclear plants. the generation being built is primarily combined gas plants, wind and solar generation. this appears likely to continue. driven by a significant degree the economics on low-priced gas and the development of more productive when the turbines and panels. the other drivers are little to no growth, public policie polics the standards, compliance with the rules impl
